WRIT 1733 - America - Americana: Home

Ask Us!


Welcome to the research guide for WRIT 1733 - America / Americana. It is based on a guide created for American historical research by my colleague Peggy Keeran, and that I have tweaked to include some information on doing ethnographic research. It provides tips and resources for finding both primary and secondary resources in history.  Use the tabs at the top to explore various research tools for finding primary sources for different areas of history.  Use the Finding Books and Articles tab to find secondary resources. If you need help with your research or have a question about the library, please feel free to email the research center at or use the Ask Us! chat box on the left. You can also contact me at or Peggy Keeran at
